Word of the Day: Humiliate

hu-mil-i-ate / hyo͞o-mĭl-ē-āt
1. to treat in a way that takes away a person’s pride, dignity or self-respect
A second basic fact that characterizes nonviolence is that it does not seek to defeat or humiliate the opponent, but to win his friendship and understanding.
Martin Luther King, Jr., 1929 – 1968
